Brand new Salomon Power Axe riser plates - $25.00

Brand new Salomon Power Axe riser plates - $25.00 plus shipping. (NO bindings). These are the red/black plates with the metal strip in between the heel and toe that says "power axe". Came off a set of S912 ps bindings. Never used. Will include all screws to mount plates to ski AND all screws to mount Salomon bindings to plate.

Will these fit S810 bindings?

Yes. You may need shorter screws though - depending on the version of the 810 you have.

Yes S810 will fit these and as I said in the ad above I am including the correct length screws to mount the bindings to the plate for all Salomon S710/711, S810, S912(as well as the screws to mount plate to the skis). to further clarify, it doesn't matter what model you have becuase with these plates you only use the bare heel and toe pieces, no other plates or risers that may have come with the binders.

Also, shipping should be around $5.00. So why don't we say $30 shipped.

Here is what a set of bindings would like on the plates (except the one I have are red/black):

Please note, these power axe's have a different mounting pattern than the binding. They CAN be drilled out to match.

No. These plates are NOT meant to be be used with the binding screws going all the way through the plates like other Salomon plates (ie: axe +). These plates have their own holes/screws which mount to the ski, then you mount the bindings to the plates. The hole pattern on plate for the bindings is the same for all S810/S912, etc model. You do not have drill out or modify these plates in any way to use them. There are different markings on the plates to adjust for different size boots (ie: BSL). Any shop will know the right way to mount these.

You are absolutely right, but they also can be modified for people (like me) who have their own jigs to mount.

I am not sure that "modifying" these is a good idea. I don't think these are designed to have the screws go all the way through like the axe + plates and would not recommend anyone try that. It might work, but if someone knows enough to be mounting bindings themselves, then they would know that the plates themselves, when set to the proper BSL length, can be used as a jig to mark the hole positions for the proper plates screw holes.

Unless you are sure about what you are doing, better to just take them to your local shop and have it done the right way.

If you drill straight through the plate you loose the freeflex function of the plate because the toe piece will no longer "float" on the plate. I think that there may be marks in older Salomon Jigs that work for this particular plate (so you could mount the plate properly). I have them on a few of my skis and they work quite well.

I think Salomon made a specific jig for this plate, they did that with the suspension binding. I know my jig doesn't have it, thats why I bypassed it.
